are on the a lend-- agenda again. china is confident, insertive in the south china sea in relations about moskow have cooled. all of this with a troubled economy at home and calls for a lighter footprint abroad. i'm pleased to have tom donilon back at this table. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: we are now into a second term. what do we mean by lighter footprint? >> well, if we step back on that, at the beginning of 2012, the president after a multimonth review, close consultation with the uniformed military, the joint chief, service secretaries and combatant commanders around the world put together a new defense strategy. that defense strategy had to take into account that the budget control act required the defense budget over ot next ten years to be reduced by $500 million or so, a little less than that. and which would require a 5% decrease over what were the plans. and in doing that the president asked the military to think about what the new challenges were going to be. what were the real challenges we were going to face. and that defense strategy was comprehensive. and it had vari

on because the stock had run up a couple of bucks. he did mention that china's getting better. we've got to file that away for the next opportunity to play china. david pyatt, total gold rush. you see, he explained to us that allergan has not just one new drug, but the possibility of a second blockbuster, an inhaled migraine fighter that his company now owns 100% of thanks to the pending purchase of mac pharmaceuticals. well, the interview broke no news, kind of like, you know, breaking news thing, it did produce something i felt that was better. a more pertinent impression, which was that pyatt's allergan's ever conservative ceo. always really conservative. when i said if i read the tea leaves right, the fact he guided analysts higher, not lower this time meant he was more bullish than usual. his readiness to agree with that. this is a conservative guy. the readiness gave you a fabulous trade. allergan went to 108 1/2 as it should have. you can hold on to up here, but $1.50 is a good day's work, depending on how much capital you put to work. while i was doing interviews, you got news ou

resources, nation states, it's a completely new reality. and these and other-- including the rise of china, other emergent centers of power, the roll of the u.s. changing, something we need to address as americans, and i set out to try to discover how these multiple revolutionary changes are interrelating one to the other and what choices they pose to us. how we really have to get involved in steering our way into the future, and choosing options tt n keit better than it otherwise might be. >> in order to take advantage of all these forces, though, you also suggest that democracy in part has been hijacked, that washington has become dysfunctional. >> yeah. >> and that threatens our ability to use all the tools. >> absolutely. we have two macro tools to use in shaping our future, roughly speaking. democracy and capitalism. in the world of politica systems the altnatis to democracy have been tested and found wanting, no need to go into the details. the same is true in economic theory, all the alternatives to capitalism. capitalism efficiently allocates resource, balances supply an demand, co

that he was going to pivot his administration toward the east and towards china and asia people-- including dick cheney who was sitting for an interview with me-- saying he worries about that because of the attention he thinks the middle east needs. is there something risk of pivoting to china? >> pivot was an unfortunate word. rebalancing in some ways. we are an atlantic to pacific power. this might have been a joke but somebody said to me "what are you going to do about west asia?" i thought whatis st asia it's the middle east. so the fact that the president is now going to israel and as i understand it he may go to ramallah. so i think it's not going to be any lack of attention on the middle east. certainly secretary kerry is going and so i think we are capable of doing both. >> rose: what should the president hope to achieve in his visit to israel? >> well, i think that what he wants to -- he's not going with a plan as i understand it. >> rose: he wi have an agda in hisind. >> well, i think his agenda is obviously some israeli/palestinian discussions but also kind of looking

with a lot of shortcomings, in the east you have, and let's talk about china or singapore, you've got countries that have systems that allow them to think much longer-term, much more for the community, where capability and merit are rewarded at the expense of just, you know, pop laughity. the shortcomings are evident. lack of traparency, lk of accountability, difficulty to remove the leadership if they're not doing a good job. so some elements from both sides is really what the book argues for. that we have to learn something from the east. they have to certainly learn something from us. >> but do you have a feeling about the east that in fact unless they make political reform, unless they have more democracy, that in the end they are end up in such a terribleonflict that the system may have create-- they have created can't survive. >> the social tension in china is enormous today. and it will force them to make changes. the changes that we expect in the west. >> do you think they will resist the changes or make them. >> they resist them by nature. >> because it's about power. >> well

and it will help bring manufacturing back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will maket easier for small businesses to hire and grow. now we agree with the president. we should lower our corporate tax rate which is one of the highest in the world. so the companies will start bringing their money and their jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow our economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attract and assimilate the world's best and brightest. we need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally. but first we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. helping the middle class grow will also require an educational system that gives people the skills today's jobs entail and the knowledge that tomorrow's world will require. we need to incentivize local school districts to offer more a.p. courses and more vocational and career training and we need to give all parents especially the parents of children with specia
